SAXTON, Christopher.
London: Philip Lea, c.1694. Coloured. 380 x 490mm, with wide margins. Evidence of a crack in the printing plate, affecting armorials. A fine example of the first map of the county of Cornwall, here published 120 years after its original publication. Over the years a number of changes had been made to the plate: the original title was replaced by the view of Launceston c.1665; the arms of Elizabeth I were replaced by those of Charles I then Charles II; the panel of armorials were added c.1665 by an unknown publisher; Lea added his name and Ogilby's roads in 1689 and changed the title for the second time in 1694, as this example. Still this was not the end of the Saxton plates: they were republished by George Willdey c.1732 and again by Thomas Jefferys and Cluer Dicey in the 1770s. Despite the number of editions any example of Saxton's map of Cornwall is uncommon.

All'interno alcune incisioni a piena pagina sull'utilizzo della bacchetta per la radioestesia. Rara e celebre opera del teologo olandese Balthasar Bekker nella quale egli, sulla base di un razionalismo di ispirazione cartesiana, si oppone alle superstizioni e alla credenza nella stregoneria e nella possessione diabolica, mettendo anzi in discussione l'esistenza stessa del demonio. Queste posizioni gli procureranno le critiche e la condanna di una parte della chiesa olandese.

La politica morale d'Epitteto posta in quatro delle più celebri lingue dell'Europa. D. Francesco Pio di Savoja . (1694) Dess Epictetus Politische Sitten-Lehre in vier der Sprachen vornembsten Europens übersetzt Epictetus Published by Henrico Ebersbach, Einsiedeln, Switzerland, 1694 In spanish, French, German and Italian First polyglot edition in vernacular languages of the Stoic classic Enchiridion, in an unusual early Italian painted vellum binding. Born a slave, and crippled early in life, Epictetus gained his freedom in Rome and moved to the Adriatic coast, where he opened a school of philosophy. His sayings were collected by his student Arrian, and edited into the handbook of moral philosophy known as the Enchiridion. Epictetus understood philosophy as an active pursuit, more difficult than the abstract exercise of logic: "Do you think that you can act as you do, and be a philosopher? . . . You must watch, you must labor, you must get the better of certain appetites, must quit your acquaintance, be despised by your servant, be laughed at by those you meet" (Carter translation). Epictetus's emphasis on self-knowledge and self-discipline greatly impressed the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, who quotes him at length in the Meditations, and his philosophy w … [Click Below for Full Description]

STRYPE, John
London: for Richard Chiswell, 1694. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Thomas Cranmer was a 16th-century English reform leader known for his reign as Archbishop of Canterbury. Cranmer's life and ministry were recorded by numerous English author's in the following decades; however, none as are prominent as that of John Strype. Strype lived a century after Cranmer, but he was well respected for his historical biographies - including that on Cranmer. 'Memorials of Thomas Cranmer' is a complete survey of his life following his work as bishop, his interactions and dealings with Thomas Cromwell, letters and correspondence, as well as providing an in-depth look at the history of the Church of England and the English Reformation.

FLEETWOOD, William.
London: printed by Tho. Hodgkin, and are to be sold by J. Whitlock, 1694. Small quarto (202 x 164 mm). Disbound pamphlet, earlier sew-holes visible in margin. Half-title/imprimatur leaf present, lightly soiled and creased. Very minor paper faults at peripheries of a few pages. A very good copy. One of two editions of that year, without established priority. Fleetwood (1656-1723), then chaplain to William and Mary and later Bishop of Ely, touched on contemporary economic issues in many of his sermons, here arguing that the clipping of the coinage was a moral evil, alongside a civic crime, and was proscribed by scripture. The publication was part of the administration's campaign against clipping - the court invited Fleetwood to preach the sermon to the mayor and aldermen of London, and it was published two days later under the imprimatur of the Bishop of London (Kleer, p. 60). It is probable that few coin clippers were deterred by the moralizing (given that they were already facing the death penalty if caught), but it is still a notable publication, later reprinted in Fleetwood's collected works. There were two editions (distinguished by the pagination), and this edition is also split into two variants distinguished by minor typographic changes. Only four copies are located by ESTC of this variant (two in Christ Church Oxford, and one in Eton and the Victoria and Albert Museum), although it is probable that other examples have been identified as the other variant. ESTC R498382; Goldsmiths' 3029; Kress 1843. See Richard Kleer, Money, Politics and Power: Banking and Public Fina … [Click Below for Full Description]
